4/25/18 - This is an original 1942 production Type 14 Nambu with an original matching numbered magazine. The pistol is in excellent condition with 97% of the original finish in tact. There is some very minor edge wear and a spot of discoloration on the right side of the pistol, but overall a very clean gun. The bore has strong rifling and is in minty condition. The pistol has large features such as the larger trigger guard, but also some early features including the grooved cocking knob. The grips on this gun appear to be replacements as they are re-numbered to match. Not unusual for a Japanese gun. All small parts matching including the firing pin. Guaranteed original and authentic.
